The local Business Link advisory services will close on 25 November 2011. Until that time they will continue to offer advice and support – although the service available may vary regionally until it is closed. Much of the local business support information that was previously found on regionally branded Business Link websites can now be found within the national Business Link website directories (Events,Business Support Finder and Contacts).
From November 2011 new, easy-to-use services will be available on Business Link to help you start up, improve and grow your business.
These will include:
A new growth and improvement service giving you access to the information you need to make your business work better; including tools to help you diagnose and solve business problems, an improved business support finder, tutorials and video case studies, information on events in your area and links to business discussions and other services.
For those of you looking to start a business, a whole new area of the Business Link website will provide a comprehensive start up service including online training and a starting up task to guide you through the process.
